Hot Tubs for Health and Relaxation

The Home Magazine sat down with Dennis and Claudia Wilkerson of Hot Tubs Plus to learn about their new business as well as the brand of Hot Tubs that they carry and the benefits of having a hot tub in your home.

Tell us a little bit about yourselves and your decision to open Hot Tubs Plus?

We have been in the pool and spa service and repair business for almost 25 years as owners of California Chemical of Bakersfield.  It is because of our extensive background in water chemistry and repair that we thought hot tubs would be a natural addition to our family operated business.

How did you decide on the Sundance Spa product?

We have been extensively researching hot tub manufacturers for the last three years.  We wanted to make sure that we were doing business with a manufacturer that holds our same values in regard to standing behind their product.  We spoke to various servicemen in the industry, to understand which hot tubs were the most dependable and the easiest companies to work with when it came to warranty work.  We kept hearing one name that stood out more than the others, and that was Sundance Spas.  A good product is only as good as the company representing it.

Tell us a little about Sundance Spas?

Sundance is one of the leading brands in innovation and hydro-therapy.  They have patented Fluidix Jets that simulate hands-on massage and are positioned to reach pressure points used in reflexology and acupuncture.  They have an easy water management program that filters seven times more water per minute than typical spas, which means that the owner spends less time on maintenance.  Sundance also uses smart technology so that you can control your spa, on select models, from a smart device – including maintenance.  Many of these spas also include aromatherapy capabilities.  We have a wide variety of models to choose from, including the two top sellers.

You mentioned hydrotherapy and aromatherapy, can you elaborate?

Hydrotherapy is the use of water to treat ailments.  Relaxing in a hot tub increases circulation, which increases healing.  It helps loosen the muscles around the spine and increases blood flow.  Aromatherapy is the use of scents to enhance a feeling of well-being.  Sundance was the first hot tub manufacturer to combine aromatherapy with hydrotherapy, without lessening water quality.  Sundance® Sunscents ™ are injected into the bubbles and released when they come to the surface. I like to say that our hot tubs are not only good for the body, but are great for the soul as well.

What is some of the feedback that you have had from your customers in this first month?

We have heard a variety of results that have included sleeping more soundly, relief from aches and pains, and the ability to un-plug with the family at the end of the day.  It truly is an opportunity to sit and relax with your family and shut-down the outside noise, and relax in your own backyard.  Plus it’s like you have a personal massage therapist at home!

What else should our readers know about you?

We are a family owned business that operates with integrity.  We stand behind our product and our work.  We have a beautiful showroom that allows you to get a feel for our product.   When you buy a hot tub from us, you will deal with us through every step of the process, from the initial purchase to the final delivery to your home.  The pricing of our hot tubs includes the cover, stairs, starter pack of chemicals, as well as standard delivery and set up (in the greater Bakersfield area).  We also offer financing, and frequently have 0% APR offers.  We hope that you will stop by and see us, so that we can answer all your questions.
